How to Take Extraordinary Photos by Thinking Creatively

Today we have another article from  Digital Photography School, written by Piper Mackay, a professional travel and wildlife photographer whose work is heavily based in Eastern Africa. Pippa gives some great tips on how to be creative when taking your photos, to help get stunning images.

The creativity in your photographs is what will make your imagery stand out. Most of us, if we commit the time, can technically master the craft of photography. Capturing a compelling image can be much more difficult especially when you are excited, experiencing something for the first time, and are visually overloaded.

You begin pointing and shooting at everything you see. You arrive home, look at your photographs, and see that you have captured extraordinary subjects or a beautiful location, but the images are somewhat mediocre. Taking an extraordinary photograph of and extraordinary subject is what you want to strive for.

I want to share with you a few tips that can quickly help elevate the creativity in your photography and help you to focus on the artistic side of photography; without the creative process, you are really only turning dials and pushing buttons.
